A Covenant Graduate

Kristin Zwirkoski| June 10, 2019

Ivy League acceptance.  Perfect ACT scores.  National Merit Finalists.  Accelerated placement. Covenant graduates have accomplished much after completing our program, and we rejoice with them in their success.

“If our students can translate ancient texts with ease, yet cannot wrestle with the ideas that have shaped the culture in which we live and stand upon a foundation of truth, we have left them wanting.”

But while we applaud their achievements, these accolades do not define us as a school, nor do they define our alumni.  Academic success is simply a by-product of our true mission and vision.

If our students succeed in the academic realm, yet have not hearts of compassion, we have failed them.  If our students can think deeply, yet have not wisdom to discern right from wrong, we have left them unequipped.  If our students can translate ancient texts with ease, yet cannot wrestle with the ideas that have shaped the culture in which we live and stand upon a foundation of truth, we have left them wanting.

What Defines A Covenant Graduate?

So what is it that defines the Covenant graduate?  The Covenant graduate possesses a life-long love of learning that was sparked in the youngest years of education.  They have a humble confidence in who God has created them to be; they are known, loved, and accepted for who they are.  Covenant grads have a wealth of information tucked away alongside the ability to use this knowledge with wisdom and discernment.  They communicate with clarity and logic in both their writing and speech. They stand firm in their beliefs and present truth with grace.

Beginning with the End in Mind

We begin a Covenant education with the end in mind, training our students to think deeply, read widely, and write well.  We strive to equip the whole child, preparing the heart, mind, and soul to embark upon an ever-deepening relationship with Christ. Our desire is to train students to serve Christ purposefully and passionately and to lead others with humility and grace.  If, when our graduates leave Covenant, they have hearts that love God and others with minds that possess both wisdom and knowledge, then we feel that we have succeeded in our calling to prepare our students for the road ahead.

To our 2019 graduating eighth-grade students and their families:

Thank you for choosing to invest in a Covenant education. You will be deeply missed.
